Upcycling: syrup bottle to aqua pitcher

Upcycled Syrup Pitcher via homework (9)Do you like my new rare antiquity? Or at least I can pretend it’s an antiquity. It’s not as convincing as I had envisioned it would be but it’s still a fun faux upcycle project.




Upcycled Syrup Pitcher via homework (5)The jewel encrusted pitcher had very humble beginnings. It started as a plastic syrup container. I always liked the shape of it and originally was going to create a knock off Fiesta pitcher. The partial round area of the pitcher reminded me of the classic Fiesta piece. Instead I tried out the Martha Stewart Stucco Paint Effect product and turned it into a faux pottery piece.

I originally was going to stop at Step #4 above but the piece was too vibrant so I added a final coat of Mod Podge Antique Sealer mottled with brown craft paint.

    1. Hi Katharine,
      According to the directions, it can be used on any surface. I'm sure it would be fine on a glass bottle. Have fun!
      Thanks - carolyn
